Time Out says

Treat yourself after a hard day's shop

There are three pages of tea on offer at this QVB classic. That’s a whopping 35 teas including their ‘splendid Earl Grey’ blend and a stand-your-spoon-up-in-it assam bari. Taking tea at this Sydney establishment is as much about the company as it is the tiny individual lemon meringue pies with their crisp pastry shells. So while you’re sitting up nice and straight on your little velour chair and picking at dainties off the three-tier tray, you’ll also want to have some decent conversation (or at the very least, juicy gossip) saved up. The large and very white room is made up of tinkling, twinkling chandeliers and gold filigree with waiter’s stations around the room attending to the tea out of giant silver urns. Sweet, ever-present staff bring plates of chubby scones with dishes of fruit preserves and clotted cream, and soft little finger sandwiches filled with the likes of cucumber, egg, salmon and ham. The Tea Room, hidden as it is on the north end of the third level of the QVB, is worth seeking out.
